In a PERFECT World...

Monday, January 23, 2012

In a PERFECT world...

1) One could eat Reese's Cups and LOSE weight.

2) All men would turn into Gerard Butler. Just sayin'...

3) The flooded dip in your back yard would turn into a sandy beach called FORT WALTON, FLORIDA.

4) There would be no lizards. That hold you hostage inside your house while it glares at you from the back deck.

5) Light bulbs would not blow. Then you wouldn't have to get on a stepladder, miss a step and land face-first in the kitchen sink.

6) You wouldn't forget your towel before getting into the bath. Which would solve the problem of you getting out soaking wet, spread-eagle-ing your legs on the tiled floor and causing permanent injury to your hips.

7) The t.v. would still operate during a power outage. Along with the popcorn maker. Everything else is negotiable.

8) Your kids paid you back for every dime you sunk into them. With interest.

9) You REALLY COULD learn to speak Spanish with Rosetta Stone. I'm still having trouble saying "thing" instead of "thang" in my OWN language.

10) Your husband would say dinner was wonderful instead of just grunting. While chewing.

11) Work friends don't write your name on the bathroom wall along with your real phone number.

12) You had a pen to write your friends' names and phone numbers on the bathroom wall at work.

13) Your neighbor wouldn't come to your house during a power outage and ask you, "Is the power out???" Then spend the next hour talking about his golf swing.

14) The Giants will win the Super Bowl.

15) Eli Manning will find his missing teeth in the turf at San Francisco. All in one piece.

16) There would be six zeros behind the $2 you won on that lottery ticket.

17) The keys wouldn't stick on the keyboard just because you drooled chocolate on them. DON'T ASK WHY I WAS DROOLING.

18) You would light your wood stove and not smell singed hair.

19) A lady bug wouldn't land in your drink. So you wouldn't have to accidentally swallow it.

20) Gum wouldn't fall out of your mouth while you're talking to your boss about your next raise. Onto his lap.

Maybe this week will be better??? I hope so!! And in a perfect world, I will get that administrative secretary job at the school. Interview tomorrow. Wish me luck!!!

God bless!

Change

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

Watching my son and his fiance sitting at the bar filling out applications and making resumes, I was filled with a sense of pride. Just a week ago they were basically out on the street in the freezing cold with no place to go, desperate for assistance and shelter. Today they are filled with a tinge of hope. Plus, alot of Mama's cooking. They each have plumped out a little and with that, their pale complexions have turned pink and healthy. So, now I am filled with a tinge of hope as well that they have learned a valuable lesson. Starting over is not fun...and it's going to take a lot of hard work on their parts, as well as mine, to get their young lives turned around.

I have also braved change and decided to seek a career with the Department of Developmental Disabilities in my area. It is an administrative position in a school for the mentally-challenged. I have longed to work with children in this genre for a long, long time. My years as a volunteer with the Special Olympics and being the caretaker of a mentally-challenged teen instilled in me an insanely amount of love for these young lives. I am hopeful of getting a further interview with the superintendent and moving forward with this goal. Who knows, with my background in nursing/social psychology, it may lead to working directly with these children and it would be the ultimate dream come true for me. Wish me luck!

It seems, however, in the midst of all this change I have forgotten to eat!! When I stepped on the scale this morning, I weighed 112 pounds. Hmmm. I have dodged comments at work about my appearance for a few days now, dismissing their concerns to the stress I've been under for the last week. It didn't really "dawn" on me that my nutrition had taken a plunge even though my clothes have been looser. So now I must change my eating habits as well.

Change, change, change.

I will admit, some days, when I don't feel so well, I would much rather bury my head beneath the covers and forget the day. Yet, it is those days that I fight the most not to remain stagnant. To quote Myles Kennedy once again, "Will I find some kind of conviction? Or will I be defined by what COULD have been?" It's easy to give up and give in some days but it's very difficult to look back and be regretful for lost opportunities on those days. Have you ever done that? Then said, "Oh, if only I did that. Maybe my life would be different today."??

Maybe it could have been. But, listen...you're not finished yet.

Neither am I.

Neither is my prodigal son.

Tomorrow morning, dig your feet into the ground, steadfastly and firmly, and fight for what you want.

Say this prayer with me:

"Dear Lord, please give me strength to face the day ahead, give me courage as I approach a hurting soul. Please give me wisdom with every word I speak and give me patience to comfort the weak. Give me assurance as the day slips into night, that I have done the best I can, that I have done what is right.

Give to my heart, Lord, compassion and understanding. Give to my hands skill and tenderness. Give to my ears the ability to listen and to my lips words of comfort. Give to me, Jesus, strength, selfless service, hope, to those I wish to serve.

And Lord, may I have a part, in some small way, to restoring faith and hope today. Let my work be all that I want it to be so I ask you, The Great Healer, to work through me."

God bless you all on your journeys to self-discovery.

It's truly worth each and every step...

Breathing Again

Friday, January 13, 2012

I had not met Sabrina, my future daughter-in-law, in person before. We have chatted on Facebook, shared pictures through email and so forth but never in person. She and my son had lived 50 miles north of here and were planning a weekend visit soon as soon as my work schedule permitted. I was excited to get to know this girl. She seemed soft-spoken, kind, but she was someone who had seen difficult times...sad times...in her young life.

I had to be at work before she and my son arrived today. I almost called off but had already done so on Tuesday when I learned of their situation. In fact, I was already at work that day for only a few hours when I heard the news that they had been evicted and I raced out the door to go retrieve them. However, there were circumstances that prevented me from following through and the night was torment for all of us involved. The last two days have been the longest days of my life. Today, however, I went, knowing that the immediate need was being fulfilled and I left in peace.

Paul texted me at work and said that he and Sabrina had arrived safely, were warm, had eaten and that he and his father were reaching a small, yet vital, milestone in their relationship. I was moved to tears when the following text simply said, "I love you, Mom. So much." I was able to feel solace and then the excitement built from there...I watched the clock, longing for it to go faster until I could get home to feel his embrace, to feel his warm cheek against my own. I was vividly aware of how slow the hands of time seemed to move.

When I could finally say goodnight to my co-workers, I raced out the door into the vicious wind and whipping snow, bracing myself against the suddenly sour bad weather. Many employees were scraping ice from their windshields. My truck doors were frozen shut. Tossing my pocket book to the pavement, longing to see my kids a.s.a.p., I grabbed the door with both hands and with brute strength, I jerked it open while the others there laughed and shouted, "Wow, you really want out of here!" I shouted back, "You have noooo idea!" I got inside, turned the ignition and broke down in tears. My son and Sabrina and my coming grandchild could have been in this stormy weather tonight...and they would have frozen to death. Bowing my head, I prayed a loooong prayer of thankfulness. I thanked God for His mercy, His grace, His love.

Racing through my front door tonight I was dismayed when Brian said they were already asleep. I asked him why and he said that the last two days had taken alot out of them, I should let them rest. Probably so, but do you honestly think that I couldn't look in on them?? Peaking my head in my son's room, the same room he had spent countless hours in as a teenager, I saw him snuggled warmly under the blankets and I raced to him, grabbing his surprised weary body from the bed and I hugged him close. He hurriedly grabbed me back. In a sleepy, weary voice he whispered, "Oh, Mom, I love you so. Thank you." Kissing his forehead, I quietly left and peered down the hallway to Breanna's room where I knew Sabrina to be. Did I dare????

What do you think?

I stood above her and was quickly, vividly, aware of how tiny she was. Little spindly arms and legs were peeking out of the blanket...but her cheeks were pink, warm, and she breathed softly in and out. I could not help it. I rubbed her little arm and whispered, "Sabrina?" Her eyes opened and at first she seemed disoriented but then...

The smile that broke across her face was the most beautiful smile I have ever seen IN MY LIFE. Sitting up in a flash, those soft skinny arms grabbed tightly around my neck and she began to cry, little soft hiccups that were barely there. I said, "Hi, baby, I'm Paul's mom." She said, "Oh, yes, I know who you are. You don't have to tell me. I know who you are." We embraced for a long time. I coaxed her to lie back down and she gleamed at me, not taking her eyes from my face as I wrapped the blankets once again around her little frail body and I said, "Sleep, angel. You are safe. You are warm." Grabbing my hand before I turned to walk from the room she said, "I love you." I kissed her forehead as well and said, "I love you, too, baby. I love you, too."

Before I made it to the living room, I was in tears. Joyful tears. There is no feeling in the world like the one knowing your children are safe and warm. The wind outside is howling angrily, the cold is biting...but it does not have my children. Not tonight. And as long as I have breath in me, it never will. I fought so hard to get them here. I had to lose a few things along the way but there is NOTHING that will ever be more important to me than my babies. I will give my own life if it will save their own. My wings of motherly love are larger than this world and nobody messes with my kids. Nobody does. Nothing does.

God is so good. Yes, many a battle awaits us. Many bumps in the road. Many heartaches again, perhaps. But let me tell you one thing...God is here, in this house, tonight, with His everlasting love and forgiveness.

We are uncertain about the future. We don't know what's around the corner.

But we are together.

Together we'll find a way.

And God is the Master of it all.

Today is God's Day

Thursday, January 12, 2012

To all who have prayed for me, I thank you. To all who have prayed for my son and the circumstances that surround him, I thank you deeply. Oh, so deeply, from the bottom of my heart.

He is coming home. If only for just a little while. To the warm heat of my home, where there is food and water, shelter from the cold, snow and rain. To a place where there will be a spot for him to lay his head for the night. The road to independence will be long, the path to confidence will be even longer... but I will be here. I will do my best to give him guidance. I will stand strong in the face of fear and exhaustion to show him that I love him. But most importantly, I want him to see that the love of Jesus Christ is eternal. No matter what he has done, no matter where his young life leads him, I want him to feel the Lord beside him, every step of the way.

To say that he has not hurt me along the way would not be truthful. But a mother is engineered with wings of forgiveness. Even during the most tumultuous times, I have managed to wrap my arms around him and tell him that I love him. I cannot help it. I will not forget it. I pray that he never forgets it either.

Not only is he coming home, but his fiancee, who is pregnant, will be joining us. That is a greater challenge. They will not be allowed to share the same room. There are going to be rules and expectations. I have made myself clear that although I love them I will not be defied in any way. I am fair but firm. I am here as long as they are respectful. Many have stated that they would not have taken the girl in...perhaps not, but I WILL. This girl has NO ONE. She was a foster child for many years in many different homes. She is a soul. A fellow human being searching for guidance and stability in her life. If I can give her that in some way, somehow, then perhaps she will find strength in her own. That is my fervent hope.

It's not about me. It's not about a hand-out. It's about loving others as God instructs us to do. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. It's about giving God in the best way you know how.

I thought my world was crumbling to pieces yesterday. I was wrong.

It's just getting stronger.

How??

Because God is right in the middle of it. I find strength through Him. I find love through Him.

I've learned to let Him carry me through.

  Oh Puddin,
I am so thankful to our Father in heaven for bringing your
boy home.

As for his pregnant girlfriend, well, maybe what she needs
is love and guidance and a motherly influence, which I know
you have to give freely.......love and acceptance..

While making sure they stick to the rules about behavior and
so forth, you may be surprised with your son stepping up and
caring for this coming child. How far along is she?

I pray for all of you that this will be a turning point in
their lives.

Father God,
I come to You, the Almighty.....the Healer. This family needs
You, Your guidance, Your touch....Father I pray for this young
man that through this coming child he will find himself and be
there for his girlfriend and the coming babe......Lord, I trust
you, and in John 14:14 You said anything we ask in Your Son's
name, You would do....this is a promise from You that I reach
for and I ask for healing for the whole family, a drawing
together, and I pray Lord for this babe, that it would arrive
strong and healthy...I pray a hedge of protection according to
Your Word around their lives, their home.
In Jesus' name, Amen.

Love,
Darlene

    There are many messages in the story of The Prodigal Son. There is the son's viewpoint, the brother's viewpoint and the father's viewpoint. You are demonstrating true love for your son and his fiancée. It may be years before you see or realize what God is doing through you for them, but be assured God is in control and asks only for your obedience.
I love that song, "What About the Prodigal's Father?" That is probably not the name of it but that's the refrain that sticks in my head. You show by your willingness to accept them into your home that you understand the Father's viewpoint.
Will continue to offer up prayers on your behalf as you all make the needed adjustments of learning to live together in harmony. God will provide the grace and courage for each day as needed.

    This blog bring tears to my eyes. tears of understanding, tears of joy that your prodigal son is returning. You are such a strong woman. Not fearless but ready to embarl on another chapter of this journey trusting God to lead the way. Oh how many times do we come running home to Our Father's arms of love and forgiveness. I continue to pray that God will be your strength.

    Thanks for sharing great words of encouragement. Sons can be a trial to us parents, but you are right to stick by him through it all. Prayer is the key to seeing their lives turn around and for them to begin/continue to make wise choices. Thanks again
